You can keep up to date on the Mecks and order any of Charlie`s books at a discount on their web site. Both Charlie and Bryan use Daiichi hooks almost exclusively. Bryan for steelhead fishing and his father for trout. Bryan fishes for 10+ pound steelhead and brown trout and fishes a lot of scud type patterns. He says, ” I like to fish small patterns but need a strong hook in a small size. I use size 12`s, 14`s, 16`s and last year even caught a few bruisers on size 18 Daiichi 1520 hooks. I need the quality that your Daiichi hooks offer. They simply work when I need them.” Charlie has written the following books: Meeting and Fishing the Hatches (1977 and 1990), Pennsylvania Trout Streams and Their Hatches (1989), Fishing Small Trout Streams with a Fly Rod (1991), Great Rivers–Great Hatches (1992), Mid Atlantic Trout Streams and Their Hatches (1995), Patterns, Hatches, Tactics and Trout (1995), Arizona Trout Streams (1998), How To Catch More Trout (2000), The Hatches Made Simple (2001), 101 Innovative Fly Tying Tips (2002), Hatches and Memories (Due May 2003).
